End of Quarter 3

Dear Muskego Lakes Families,


It is hard to believe that the 3rd quarter ends on Friday! This is a great time for students to check in on grades with their teachers. Should they have any missing work, they could get it completed over Spring Break and submitted prior to report cards coming out.


Speaking of Spring Break, on behalf of the teachers and staff at Muskego Lakes, we hope families have a safe, relaxing break. We look forward to seeing students back at Muskego Lakes refreshed and ready to take on the 4th quarter!


In partnership,

Rachel Rydzewski & Chad Krupar

Virtual Student Recess!

Remote Learning Day - Virtual Career Day

On our district Remote Learning Day, Friday March 26th, students will learn about different careers and hopefully learn more about themselves in the process. 5th and 6th grade students will explore high interest activities and different career videos. 7th and 8th grade students will also access different career video segments, access careers from 16 different career clusters and participate in activities to support their career exploration. There are several assignments & reflection sheets that all grade levels are asked to complete.


Your student will receive an email from Muskego Lakes at 7am on Friday. When they open that email, they will have access the Google Slide Presentation with the interactive information that they will be working on during their March 26th school day.


Families interested in learning more can access the student slideshows below. Each slideshow has an overview video linked on the first slide.

We hope that students will fully engage in this Virtual Career Fair experience and enjoy learning about careers of interest as well as career opportunities they had not thought of before!
